MV: MHW Tutorial
This is a from-the-start-and-assume-nothing
tutorial on setting up MV to use MHW. It looks
long, but that's only because of the 'assume nothing'
The example I will use is the Dutch MHW data. It assumes
the plugin is already installed.
If I say 'Press DREAM->Input Menu->X' it means 'press dream
on the remote, select the item input menu, then select
the item X'.
You must be running the full version of MV (not the
lite version) to do the setup.
Check mhwepg is on your box. That's the program
which actually reads the data. It should be at
/var/bin/mhwepg or /bin/mhwepg
Start the plugin
Press DREAM->Input Menu
switch channels to Nederland 1
Start the plugin.
You should see a green 'M' appear at the
top of the screen, meaning that MV is reading
MHW data. If not: try telnetting to your box and
look at /var/tmp/mhwepg.out. The 'M' should
disappear after 40 seconds or so.
Press '0' to reload data.
You should see a green 'U' appear at the
top of the screen.
Press DREAM->Alias Manager
- Check that 'Storage Dir' is set to
a storage media you have e.g. USB
- Deselect 'AutoDirs'
- Deselect all four of the checkboxes
on the left of the screen, except the
- Using the selector to the right of
the checkbox, select 'MHW (NL)'.
- Press LAME 3 times to exit the plugin.
Press 0 to reload data.
Press 4 to switch to view 4
You should now have > 2 programs showing for
the channels you selected on the right in the
alias manager! Congratulations!
- On the left are channels which MV has read data
for via MHW. On the right are the channels from
your user bouquet. Select a channel from the left,
then one from the right to tell MV which names
correspond. If you don't want to see data for a channel
on the left, select IGNORE on the right.
- Once ALL channels on the left have disappeared,
press LAME twice.
Once setup is done, you can use the LITE version of MV if you like.
To keep the data up to date, you need to open MV at e.g.
Nederland 1/2/3 every couple of days. You can also do
it from within MV by selecting a program in Nederland 1/2/3
and pressing TV (always update data) or OK (switch to channel
and update data if necessary).
